Even sportier lines and an innovative layout.
The exteriors designed by Stefano Righini combine the collection’s signature features with unprecedented diamond-shaped deckhouse windows, in a solution that gives the boat personality, while promising to amaze with its plays on reflected light.
The original layout is another defining feature. The galley is located forward, on the main deck, in an unusual position for a sports yacht. In the dining area, two up/down tables can be adjusted in both directions to transform the dinette into a lounge area, which extends seamlessly across inside and outside spaces through a four-panel door. This linking of the two social areas represents another important novelty introduced by Azimut S7.
The 19-square-meter owner’s suite is, without a shadow of doubt, the heart of the night area and also features an important innovation: the integration of the sleeping and washing areas, in which privacy is nevertheless ensured by a 1.70 meter high partition. Overlapping surfaces, mirrors and translucent materials give a sophisticated and original appearance to this space, which is inundated with light through rectangular windows that are bigger than on previous models. The second double cabin is forward, while the two guest cabins in the centre of the yacht each have two beds (bunkbeds in one and an L-shape arrangement in the other).
A stairway forward of the helm station, under the windscreen, makes it possible to have spaces that are extremely roomy and flexible, as is the below deck area, which contains four big cabins and three bathrooms.
The use of carbon fiber in the superstructure and pivoting platform mean that the Azimut S7 is the only boat in its segment to deliver so much space and 2-meter headroom on both the main and lower decks. Access to the crew area, which contains a twin bed cabin, is from the side, in a solution typically found on larger yachts.
Innovative decor and rich materials, unusual for a sports yacht. The decor is by Francesco Guida, working with the brand for the first time, who has created furnishings and finishes worthy of a superyacht.
The interiors by Francesco Guida introduce a design based on understated richness, embellished by bold details (including carbon fiber style accents) and innovative materials combined in a timelessly harmonious whole. Hanging furnishings, two wood varieties enriched with steel edging, and wooden tops treated to contribute to the highly distinctive decor are just some of the key features. The ceilings, including the one in the saloon with an attractive new finish, and backlit perimeter surfaces also create evocative lighting effects and make the settings seem larger.
Plenty of liveable space both indoors and out. The triple IPS technology, as well as improving performance and consumption, also means that the engine room can be very compact, which translates into even more space below deck and comfort for both owner and guests. The result is a livable below deck area a remarkable 13 meters in length, plus a garage which, unlike other boats in this category, can contain both a 3.25 meter tender and a jet ski (normally carried on the swim platform). This solution leaves the stern clear when the garage is closed, creating a beautiful sea terrace with the help of an innovative pivoting platform that is one of the pluses offered by this model.
Extensive advanced technology. Three Volvo IPS 1050 propulsion units are installed in the S7, each equipped with an 800 hp engine, which drive the yacht to a maximum speed of more than 35 knots when fully fitted out. On a technical level, the ECS (Enhanced Cruising Solutions) programme introduces a series of solutions to deliver the best possible product experience: active trim control to automatically adjust the yacht’s longitudinal trim and optimise fuel consumption in all conditions; the auto balance system, which transfers fuel between tanks to adjust transverse trim in changing load conditions; and, finally, joystick driving, the integrated onboard control and monitoring system that also features an interface system for the main onboard functions, including air conditioning in the various areas of the yacht.
The Azimut S7 is designed and built to the highest standards applied in the sector and has been issued with the shipyard’s HTS High Technical Standard declaration.
